politicians are afraid to lose the money they're getting paid to not talk about it. former michigan governor jennifer granholm knows full well the consequences of avoiding those debates. detroit still reeling from the financial crisis of '08. and as the governor argues the political talking points, whether it's on lower taxes or deregulations and markets simply ant the answer. jennifer granholm and her husband dan mullhern are authors of a new book, "governor's story: the fight for jobs and america's future." last i saw you, we were talking about the need to focus on efficiency rather than the fuel source debate as one example of the debates that america deserves that it does not get. explain to me how it is that we can get to having the debates that we all want to engage in, from efficiency and learning that health and jobs. >> dylan, the reason why we wrote this the book is because michigan's experience, really, what's happening to the nation now has happened to michigan over the past decade. everyone's scratching their heads about how to figure out how to create jobs in america in a globa
powerless. i think the people in michigan really node -- need a hand. we need work, we want work. that's all. we don't want a handout. we want jobs. >> in michigan on monday, mr. obama said he's prepared to fight for his new job growth proposals, defend organized labor and take steps to restore america's middle class. he also expressed hope for the future of detroit. >> it's like the commercial says. this is a city that's been to heck and back. and while there are a lot of challenges here, i see a city that's coming back. you ask somebody here if times are tough, they'll say, yeah, it's tough but we're tougher. look at what we're doing to overcome. look at what we're doing to rebuild and re-invent and redefine what it means to live in this great city. >> well, in a sign that president obama's optimism may not be for nothing, a general motors plan to once produce gas-guzzlie ining sedans has be reborn as the only automobile factor of its kind in the united states. casey wian has more from o'ryan, michigan. >> reporter: brad was working at a gm plan in the wisconsin that was about to close in

to congress. rick from michigan, republican. caller: your guests represent two different points of view. i do not want one guy to speak to me at all. the one problem in the government is the federal reserve. we have been under the thumb of the reserve from 1913. these people are running the economy. obama cannot do anything. the congress has given up their constitutional responsibility. we need to redo this whole thing. the system is broke. we pay a gasoline tax. that is supposed to pay all the road costs. we're paying too much tax as it is. we need to eliminate the federal income tax. the others need to be looked at. we have to look at the monetary system. if you print another $447 billion -- we are broke. host: does get reaction. what did you think about his comments? -- let's get reaction. guest: he doesn't want me to talk because i do not agree with this point of view. one of the big problems of the federal reserve is that it is not doing as much as it could be doing to fight the recession. you have ben bernanke doing a lot of pretty aggressive moves. he has not done big quantitative easi
at the same time, one in detroit, michigan, one in fort worth, texas, commuting back and forth. this in the '30s. 25,000 members between the two churches. after world war ii he gets involved in anti-communism, and he realizes that, hey, roman catholics and he are on the same page, and this man who was against the catholics in the '20s has an audience with pope pius xii in 1947. so's he was an interesting pragmatist. one little footnote, and then i'll take questions if you have them, something i didn't hit. in the 1940s one of norris' young students -- and he was always having young people come along. he was a charismatic kind of individual, and they sort of wanted to be like him and learn from him, and he had a reputation for not taking anything from anybody and so forth. was a young man by the name of john bear. that's -- birch. that's a name that you may know. john birch became a missionary sent out by norris' church to china. while he was in china, late '30s, early '40s, of course, that's when the war was heating up. john birch got involved with military operations and becam
. president? the presiding officer: the senator from michigan. ms. stabenow: thank you, mr. president. i want to speak for a few moments about what is happening, what has been happening all week here in the senate and in the house of representatives. first of all, this year we've seen a terrible string of natural disasters that have shut down businesses, left families homeless across america. as chair of the agriculture committee, i'm certainly very concerned about the flooding along the mississippi and missouri rivers and the record droughts that have devastated the livelihoods of men and women who grow our food across america. in response to that, the senate, on a bipartisan basis, a strong bipartisan basis, responded to provide the funding for fema to help with communities across america -- 48 states -- to be able to responding and be able to do what we always do as americans: to be able to step up and work together and meet these kind of natural disasters and the help that's needed. we sent that to the house. the house decided, on the other hand, that they not only would lower the funding
at the time i became governor in michigan had some taxes that other states didn't. and we had a study done and one of the things it showed pretty clearly is that people were mobile. and we were losing people. and i think there's been some evidence lately in other states where tax increases have resulted in the relocation, the taxes on certain classes of people or income levels or whatever resulted actually in less revenue as they relocated residences to other states. my good oregon constituent is now a las vegas resident. apparently the legislature did a little tax changes in senator wyden's state. i think on the tax expenditure side we're kind of presenting unprecedented testimony today to say, look, let's put them all on the table but let's use them to achieve what, again, senator wyden mentioned, get that rate low. if you start losing these and i think the finance committee has got, you know -- we're counting you to be the champion to fight the poaching of these by other spenders or other interests around the congress who haven't studied the issue the way you have, but you've got to pro

the jobs numbers and this city suffering worst than most. unemployment here is at -- well, in michigan it's at 10.9%, but in detroit it's almost at 16%. over 50% are among the long-term unemployed. why does that matter in this is a state that the president won by 17 points. and now his approval rating in the state is at 34%. those are bismol numbers, ted. he has to get the numbers up if he hopes to win re-election. we will see the president here not just today but a lot in the next year as he campaigns for re-election. >> any hint on what he will talk about today and specifically if there will be any sneak peek into what he will deliver on thursday in terms of his plan? >> in terms of the plan we will hear him talk about the fact that he will press for measures that had bipartisan support in the past. this is a big theme for the white house, the kinds of initiatives he is proposing to increase job employment in this country, and they have had the support of republicans previously so should again. i know that we will have him talk about the importance of having a strong middle class for ec
, thank you for calling. caller: i am concerned here in michigan with the layoffs, the $300 million deficit, and they appointed two emergency financial managers. there seems to be waste and fraud and abuse in accountability. i would like to see how no child left the chat -- no child left behind enforced in court and not left to the states. host: so your state is not up to the challenge? caller: that is correct. host: can you give us more specifics? caller: we have a lot of administrators, a superintendent, with the governor that has recently left office, she had controlled for years. they took out almost $1 billion but still we maintained a deficit. the should have file for bankruptcy protection and we would not be in this situation. it does not make sense for kids to go to school and not have supplies and toilet paper. it was a bunch of nonsense. host: the ranking member of the education committee had this to say about obama's decision when it came to the waivers. president obama's efforts represent a dramatic shift -- again, waivers being offered to states to come up with their ow
democrat in another 40 years. the next call is from michigan. caller: good morning. guest: good morning. caller: i want to thank you for hitting the topics right on the nail. we definitely need to go after the upper income people because, as in backing the great depression, it did two things. it made the wealthy get off the money. it also made them free of jobs. without a strong middle-class, this country is never going to survive. in michigan, we have a 10% unemployment rate. it is basically because of foreign trade policies that we have agreed to. we need to start taking care of our own in the united states. getting back to what the person said about president obama taking a vacation, back here in michigan, the legislature takes two months of treaty summertime. nobody needs to be taking two months off in the summertime. i want to cut short and by mr. parker for speaking the truth. guest: i want to respond if i may. i love that advertising campaign of imported from detroit. it shows this country has muscled. the state of michigan has muscle. the american car industry is coming back. lo
, delaware, illinois, indiana, kentucky, kentucky, kentucky, ohio, ohio, ohio, michigan, missouri and tennessee. some have suggested that this program has been slow to spend emergency funding provided in the f.y. 2000 c.r. the loan process ought to be strenuous. one company originally applied in 2006 and received an a.t.v. loan in 2010 and required four years of due diligence and reviewed to qualify for the loan. republicans seem to be shoing an ultimate umh. expedite the review process. by the way, the company in question employed 400 employees before receiving the loan. today they have 1,400 employees in the field of engineering research and development, design, manufacturing, assembly, maintenance and service, sales and support. the program has an additional 18 loan applications in progress that are projected to create 50,000 to 60,000 more jobs in california, florida, illinois, indiana, louisiana, michigan, missouri and ohio. one pending application would support investments at 11 plants in illinois, indiana, michigan and ohio. the company employs over 56,000 workers having ad
hope he goes to michigan. i hope he comes back to ohio. he was in ohio yesterday, and he said this about the jobs bill. >> ohio, if you pass this bill, then right here in this state tens of thousands of construction workers will have a job again. pass this jobs bill, and there will be funding to save the jobs of up to 14,000 ohio teachers and cops and firefighters. there are schools all throughout ohio that need this kind of renovation. there's a bridge in cincinnati that connects ohio to kentucky that needs this kind of renovation. there are construction projects like these all across the country just waiting to get started and there are millions of unemployed construction workers looking for a job. so my question to congress is, what on earth are we waiting for? >> and of course a gallup poll out today showing 45% of americans want their congressional member to vote for the american jobs act. only 32% want them to vote against it. so, once again, the people aren't being listened to by the republicans. now, in the state of ohio, boots on the ground here, it it's a radical age

-runner's status this weekend. mitt romney won michigan straw poll by a 3-1 margin over perry. now, romney's father served as michigan governor in the '60s making the son somewhat of a home state favorite. in florida, herman cain took top billing. he drew twice as many votes as perry, with romney in third place. cain says he won because voters are beginning to notice his 999 tax plan. here's how he explains it. >> my plan is bold because it throws out the tax code and imposes a business flat tax of 9%, personal flat tax of 9%, national sales tax of 9%. it replaces all of the taxes that people are now having to grapple with and it provides search engine to the business community which is what they're looking for in order to grow this economy. >> governor perry jumped into the race for the gop nomination. that was just six weeks ago. instantly topped the polls but critics say that perry's debate performances have been kind of shaky, leaning to some doubts. >>> well, in 3 1/2 hours we're going to get new details on the washington monument and perhaps when it's going to reopen to tourists. it's been cl
